LAC-MEGANTIC, Que. – Transport Canada was slammed Tuesday (Aug. 19) in a long-awaited report into last summer’s train disaster that claimed the lives of 47 people, for not forcing Montreal, Maine and Atlantic Railway to improve its safety record.

Have we got a pattern here?’ ” Wendy Tadros, president of the Transportation Safety Board, said in an interview.
